1- All 0r Nothing Thinking

You view a situation in only two categories instead of on a continuum

 

2- Anticipating Negative Outcomes

You expect that something negative has happened or is going to happen.

A – Fortune Telling – You predict that something negative is going to happen in the future, as if you were gazing into a crystal ball

B – Catastrophizing – You tell yourself that the very worst is happening or is going to happen, without considering other possibilities that may be more likely and/or negative

 

3- Disqualifying or Discounting the Positive

You unreasonably tell yourself that positive experiences, deeds, or qualities do not count.

 

4- Emotional Reasoning

You think something must be true because you “feel” (actually, believe) it so strongly, ignoring or discounting evidence to the contrary.

 

5- Labeling

You put a fixed, global label on yourself or others without considering that the evidence might more reasonably lead to a less disastrous conclusion.

 

6- Mental Filter

You pay undue attention to one negative detail instead of seeing the whole picture.

 

7- Mind Reading

You believe you know what others are thinking, failing to consider other, more likely, possibilities, and you make no effort to check it out.

 

8- Overgeneralization

You make a sweeping negative conclusion that goes far beyond the current situation.

 

9- Should and Must Statements

     You have a precise, fixed idea of how you or others should behave and you overestimate how bad it is that these expectations are not met.

 

10- Maladaptive Thoughts

     Problematic thoughts that do not contain logical thinking errors. These thoughts may be true. However, dwelling on them makes you feel more anxious and may interfere with your performance.
